Coda Releases Allegro 2000
Incorporates much of Finale 2000’s functionality

by David Nagel
Senior Producer

Minneapolis-based Coda Music technology today released Allegro 2000, a mid-range notation package. The software draws heavily on the company's high-end Finale 2000 music publishing system and entry-level PrintMusic! 2000 notation software. The company says most of Finale's MIDI features are included in Allegro, including recording of MIDI data; a MIDI Graphic Editing window for tweaking performance aspects; a transcription engine for turning Standard MIDI Files into notation; and HyperScribe, a real-time note entry system where notes are entered by playing a MIDI keyboard while the user controls the tempo. Other features include:

  • A new Set-Up Wizard that lets users select their instruments or voices and instantly sets up the score so that staff names, transpositions, clefs and playback sounds are all automatic;
  • Several templates are included, such as Lead Sheet, Chamber Orchestra, Jazz Band and SATB with piano;
  • Imports scanned sheet music files from MidiScan;
  • QuickStart video tips and instant help messages teach the basics of Allegro 200;
  • Music is now spaced automatically as it is entered.
